2018 Bass River Riesling
South Gippsland, Victoria
Bass River is tiny winery that bears a resemblance to a small domaine in South Gippsland – in size, approach, passion and very often in the glass. The vignerons – The Butera Family, emphasis being placed on producing small quantities of premium wines grown only from the estate vineyard, expressing terroir and organic principles to hand craft distinctive regional wines.
At Bass River they aspire to craft wine to best portray the vineyard and deliver wines with elegance, freshness, purity, balance and length. This demands that they follow a stringent non-interventionist traditional approach to our winemaking, by allowing controlled indigenous yeast to do our fermentation and using traditional Burgundian methods to enhance the expression of our terroir and character of Bass River.
